There are great advantages to automatic driving lessons. The automatic gearbox changes gears for you and with only a couple of pedals to operate, there's something to be said about driving an automatic car. They are easier to drive, you have more time to concentrate on the road. Your automatic driving course will be taken by our Driving Schools approved and licensed instructor who will follow the recommended DVSA syllabus. But remember: if you take your driving test in an automatic car you'll only ever be able to drive an automatic car.

Driveaway School of Motoring offer one to one intensive courses and tailor made courses to suit your individuals needs. You will need a two hour initial assessment lesson, manual or automatic, which will give an indication of the amount of time it will take you to get ready for your practical test. We are honest and realistic about how long you may need to do your course. Although it's possible to take an intensive course as a complete novice it is not recommended. You are better able as a partially trained pupil to progress quicker.
